I'm using Ostrich Sans as part of a project and i noticed that the font is aligned to the baseline and has a large ascender. I tried but cannot vertically align this through CSS.

How can I modify the font pack itself in a tool such as FontForge such that the font is vertically centered?

  • Font editing software allow radical edits, this shouldn't be an exception. Another thing is as important: Does the author of the font allow customized versions? If this is a free font, also free to modify and distribute, one thing is quite sure: You have no right to use text "Ostrich Sans" in the name of the modified version. Read the license. It's your job to find it. – user287001 Mar 29 '20 at 19:00
  • @user287001 - fair enough, I deleted it. No insult to anyone was intended. It was just the play on words that struck me as apt, "Ostrich sans" and the word "sands". – Billy Kerr Apr 1 '20 at 13:27

    For me the ostrich in sand comment was humour, but the moderator decides and he has four times decided differently than me. – user287001 Apr 1 '20 at 13:31
  • @user287001 - absolutely. Point taken. – Billy Kerr Apr 1 '20 at 13:32
